The increasing demands of social compliance and regulatory requirements are forcing the industry to rethink our approach to textile research and development.It’s a brave new world out there, with increasing complexity above and beyond the typical variables found within our supply chains. Product development processes must become pro-active by incorporating people and processes from the seemingly far-off worlds of legal, social compliance, chemical management and global regulations. Join this webinar to learn how to rethink your approach to developing textiles. Explore specific examples of process optimization and work stream automation that have demonstrated success in forming creative solutions to product innovation within our regulated world.
